At a recent Barcelona v Villareal match, Dani Alves was the subject of racism with a banana being thrown at him while taking a corner. His reaction – eat the banana, take a corner, get on with the game, ignore mindless idiots. Brazil team-mate Neymar, started up the #weareallmonkeys viral campaign, supporting all players who are subjected to racial abuse. As a show of solidarity, here is my tribute to them for the 2014 World Cup, with a little help from a rather famous banana.
Very happy to be showing my #weareallmonkeys World Cup poster at the Proud Archivist World Cup exhibition from June 12. The main space will be showing Michael McDonald’s portraits of the select few who have scored in a World Cup Final AND a display of EVERY panini World Cup sticker. Pop along!
